Halliburton announced the official opening of its state-of-the-art advanced perforating flow lab. The new facility expands Halliburton's global perforating research, development and testing capabilities with technologies that simulate the most extreme real-world reservoir conditions and provide customers with unique perforating solutions that help optimize reservoir performance.
The facility includes four independent testing rooms, an integrated command and control center, a core preparation laboratory, and an extensive perforated core analysis laboratory for post-test evaluation.
Among the lab's technologies are: flow vessels with the ability to conduct tests that simulate downhole reservoir conditions, including pressures and temperatures with a maximum rating of 50,000 psi and 400°F; test vessels with the ability to rotate 180 degrees to perform gravity-related sanding studies; and a perforated core analysis laboratory that utilizes the latest computed tomography imaging technology to evaluate perforator performance and reservoir inflow.
